    Laugh-out-loud hysterical!

    Hayley Powell is back in Death of a Bacon Heiress, the seventh installment in the Hayley Powell Food and Cocktails cozy mystery series. This book can be read as a standalone, as the author does a wonderful job of giving backstory so anyone can pick up the book and read it. However, you will definitely want to go and grab the first six in the series! They are equally charming and laugh-out-loud hysterical. I have really enjoyed this series since the very first book, and this book was no different, I really enjoyed this book, The plot itself is well written, well developed and well thought out. The twists in the story kept me guessing and it was a fast-paced read that kept me up late at night reading. I thoroughly enjoyed the new characters introduced and I also enjoyed seeing "new" sides of characters that I have known and loved since the beginning and new character relationship development in process. I can't wait until book eight, Death of a Pumpkin Carver, is released later this year! The combination of magazine columns and recipes add an additional layer of goodness to all of the Hayley Powell books. Overall, Death of a Bacon Heiress was a charming and hysterical read with a fast-paced story line and fun characters, (Hello, Pork Chop anyone?)! I received an ARC of this book, from NetGalley, in exchange for my honest review.

    Bacon and Murder in Maine

    I enjoy this series. Hayley writes a cocktail and food column for a local Maine publication. In this one Hayley is hired to write a blog for Redmond Meats. She finds the body of the owner of the company and sets out to solve the crime. There are a lot of suspects. I really like the Maine setting, the characters and of course the bacon. I also enjoy the humor esp the part about questions tourists ask. The mystery was good and the solution made sense. This series does not have to read in order. So pick up a cocktail and a bacon dish and enjoy this cozy mystery. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review

    Just too ridiculous for me!

    Death of a Bacon Heiress by Lee Hollis is the seventh book in the Hayley Powell Mystery series. Dr. Alvin Foley has been missing for a couple of weeks. It is the talk of the town until Hayley Powell, writer of Island Food and Spirits for The Island Times, is invited to do a cooking demonstration on The Chat where she meets Olivia Redmond. Olivia is the owner of Redmond Meats (a very powerful and rich woman). Olivia asks Hayley to write blog posts for the Redmond Meats website (and Hayley can really use the money). When Hayley stops by Olivia’s house, she finds Olivia dead in her yard (with Olivia’s pot-bellied pig, Pork Chop nearby). The suspect list is long and includes The Chat hostess, Rhonda Franklin. Hayley will have her work cut out for trying to find the culprit. In the meantime, Hayley has to provide a home for Pork Chop (and Hayley’s other animals are not happy) and is dealing with her boyfriend, Dr. Aaron Palmer (local vet). Aaron has been distant lately and is not returning Hayley’s phone calls (like he is avoiding her). Is he getting ready to propose? And what is going on with Rhonda Franklin and Hayley’s friend, Mona (who has been married for twenty years and has a houseful of unruly children)? They are certainly seeing a lot of each other. Things are lively and about to get worse when the body of Dr. Alvin Foley turns up. I found Death of a Bacon Heiress to be too ridiculous (silly). The mysteries were extremely easy to solve. The writer tries to lead the reader down the wrong path, but the killer is extremely obvious. Death of a Bacon Heiress can easily be read alone (you do not have to read the previous books in the series in order to know what it going on in the novel). There are some bacon recipes included in the back of the book (a bonus). Martha Stewart must be getting a royalty check from this book since she was mentioned four times. I was shocked that the main character thought three hundred thread count sheets were a luxury. I give Death of a Bacon Heiress 3 out of 5 stars. While Death of a Bacon Heiress is not for me, I am sure that many others will enjoy the humor in the novel. I received a complimentary copy of Death of a Bacon Heiress from NetGalley (and Kensington Books) in exchange for an honest evaluation of the novel.
